Win a five-star weekend break at The Langham, London hotel!

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

Today I am launching a fantastic hotel competition in association with The Langham, London. You can win a 2-night weekend break for two people, with breakfast.

You may remember that I reviewed The Langham back in May and was impressed.

The Langham, London was the first ‘grand hotel’ in Europe, opening in 1865. It will be celebrating its 150th anniversary next year and you could be checking in!

Following an £80 million refurbishment, the façade of this historic Victorian building contains a modern five-star luxury property with an excellent Roux-run restaurant, award winning bar and an impressive spa and pool. You are just 90 seconds from Oxford Street and a short walk from Bond Street and the boutique shops of Marylebone High Street.

Langham London

All Langham hotels offer a special deal to British Airways Executive Club Gold members. Show your BA Gold card at check-in and you will be immediately enrolled in their ‘1865’ loyalty programme at ‘Voyager’ level. This would usually require five stays and gives you the following benefits:

6pm check-out subject to availability – very handy for evening flights

a one category room upgrade subject to availability

free fruit and water

your choice of personalised welcome amenity

free internet

500 Avios points per NIGHT (maximum 3 nights)

Langham Spa

If you are still looking for a Christmas gift, The Langham offers a fantastic range of gift vouchers covering every part of the hotel. You can choose from a range of vouchers for:

meals in the ‘Roux at The Landau’ restaurant

cocktails in ‘The Artesian’ bar – winner of the Drinks International ‘World’s Best Bar’ award

spa treatments

afternoon tea

overnight stays

Gift vouchers are available via this site.

What can you win?

We are giving away a gift voucher for a two-night weekend stay for one or two people in a Grand Room.

Breakfast and Wi-Fi are included and the voucher is valid for 12 months. You can pass on the voucher to a friend or family member if you wish.

The standard price of a gift voucher stay is £360 per night, so your prize is worth £720! In reality, the typical cost of a two-night weekend stay with breakfast at The Langham, London can be over £1,000.

Even if you live in London, it is well worth entering – a weekend at The Langham is probably more fun than staying at home, especially if you don’t have your own swimming pool!

  1. Raffles says:

    The other benefit of this system is that I can actually see comments to OTHER posts – the way I see it as administrator is simply a straight list of comments on all posts merged together which means it is easy to miss stuff when a competition is running.

    Of course, I now have a swamped Twitter feed instead!

  2. Nice competition – fingers crossed 🙂

  3. It would seem that we have a unduly large number of complainers! Why I have no idea, Raffle does a great job giving us many more miles than many of us would get “flying solo”. I agree that the prize provider should gain some benefit if they so wish.

    Keep up the good work

  4. Richard Johnson says:

    Like the new system. Ignore the complainers.

  5. Thanks for running this competition. I’ve been to a few Langham properties around the world (including London) and it’s one of my favourite hotels.

  6. Much prefer the new system, mainly as it’s easier for me & I approve of Raffles getting greater reach through Twitter.
    If I was overseas at the time of the competition it’s one of those things I just live with & accept as…well….one of those things. If I was really, really desperate to enter I’d just email someone at home the link & instructions on how to enter for me.

  7. Fingers crossed…

  8. JamesWag says:

    What on earth is a personalised welcome amenity ?

    • Lady London says:

      It’s what they feel like giving you at the time.
      No, it’s not ‘that’ sort of amenity.

  9. Chris corbett says:

    I entered the first two ways but the system recorded my tweet entry against the mailing list entry. When I try and tweet again it says I already have and I can’t enter the mailing list way coz it already has a tick against it!!

  10. I stayed at the Langham in Shanghai and it was superb. Good luck to all those who enter.

  11. Mr Entitled says:

    Ruffws, Mhhmd huhgs mumph

    Sorry, I couldn’t speak properly to begin with. I have now spat my dummy out so will try again…


    I am most disillusioned that I am unable to enter a competition all because you feel the need not to try and break gaming laws. Well excuse me, but when did this become all about YOU when it should be about ME?

    The way I see it despite having considerably less than an 1 in a 300 chance of winning something for free I am in effect being DENIED something for free.

    This morning my car ran out of petrol. I am unsure how this is someone else’s fault but once I have worked out how these two events are related I expect you to reimburse me for the Langham stay that I would have won (guaranteed) and a tank of petrol.

    P.S. I will send a bill for the petrol but I wont be using my 20p Tesco saving that you have repeatedly help me earn with little effort or thanks from myself.

  12. Roberto in Malaga says:

    Thanks for the comp raffles. Nifty bit of coding too.

  13. Michael says:

    New system feels more polished. Tweet worked fine for me.

  14. would be fun. 🙂

  15. Greenpen says:

    I was blocked so went through my employers VPN thingy but not sure whether I am entered or not.

    I don’t understand Twitter except it seems to be the way celebrities communicate with the BBC. Bring back cloakroom tickets please!

  16. Jordan D says:

    Entry page geoblocked from here in Germany … which is very much within the EU. Any ideas?

    • Odd, your network must loop around somehow via a non-German ISP. If you at work, try at home (or vice versa) or use your smartphone via a Wi-Fi network outside your home or office.

    • Andrew S says:

      So i did some digging here – there appears to be a problem with corperate IP`s which are not by definition GEO located they are leased lines into a central backbone (somewhere). Some IP lookup providers host them in the country of registration, whilst others locate where the pipe intersects the backbone.

      Our own servers are located in Ireland, but the IP lookup companies have us pinned to either the US (corperate IP registration address) or Switerland (I guess they know the backbone is in EU so its default EU center point).

  17. Well, I thought it was so simple i’m looking to use the system for a competition at work!

    However – when clicking the twitter link it posts to the most recent account that was open – which i’d forgotten was the work account rather than personal one (so had to rapidly delete the tweet – just to be transparent 🙂 ).

  18. Being a lucky previous winner of a HFP completion I trust I will have the same chance as everyone else!

  19. wetboy1uk says:

    Not sure I am getting this – I complete my name and email address but then once I click save it tells me to comeplet the above to unlock the additional entries – same everytime – havent I already completed the above though. Plus it is not saying that I have entered? What is going on?

    • Odd. It shouldn’t do that. Once you put in your name and email in the top box it should then open up the two boxes below in case you want to tweet or add your name to the Langham email list.

      I recommend trying again on a different device or a different browser on the same device, and then using a different email.
